“Carrington Inn special events are created to make it easy to party and socialise.

Throughout the year, our staff create and organise fun and memorable events for seasonal celebrations, cultural remembrances, and just great times out.  Events where all the organisation, catering, and entertainment are taken care of for you, so all you have to do is book in, brush up, and bring a friend.”

For over a century, The Carrington’s character and heritage has made it a sociable place to eat, drink, and be merry. Our Special Events are organised to make it easy for people, with limited time, to organise something fun and gay to do with old friends, and to make some new friends too.

SHORTIS & SIMPSON “Year of the Haircut”  A Night of Satire, Comedy, Music and Fine Food

2017- what a year it’s been!

We were led to believe it was The Year of the Rooster, but no, this has been the Year of the Haircut, a year that looks like it could have been run from a hairdressing salon.

Why ? Because we’ve been taken to the brink by Donald and Kim, two men with the world’s worst hairdos.

Then there’s the High Court judges’ wigs that have worked overtime as they determine whether we can vote for marriage equality in the mail, and whether a bunch of politicians are constitutional.

Not to mention the cut-throat razors in the hands of Malcolm’s two political foes, Bill and Tony.

Then there’s the red hair of a certain Pauline that was completely covered by a burqa with the lot. And Boris Johnson.

All this, and more, is ripe for cutting-edge hair-rasing satire as Shortis and Simpson, in their inimitable style, present their sharp take on the events and characters that have shaped this year of years.

And, as the silly season is just a whisker away, there will be a wave of Christmas cheer weaving its way throughout.

Don’t miss 2017- The Year of the Haircut, at the centre of the universe- the Bungendore Woodworks Café, not to be repeated anywhere else in the region.

Thanksgiving Dinner at the Carrington Inn – 3 Course Feast

Thanksgiving is a 400-year-old North American tradition with roots in English harvest festivals. Originally an expression of humility and thankfulness for special providence, today it is a celebration that puts gratitude for the well-being of family and friends at the centre of one’s thoughts. It rejoices with a food bounty to focus on these priorities.

After our successful 2016 Thanksgiving Dinner, our historic Inn is once again dedicating a day to experience the wholesome traditional foods of Thanksgiving, complete with roast turkey breast, orange honey glazed ham, cranberries compote, herb stuffing, creamy mash potatoes, Boston corn chowder, string beans & bacon, gravy, rolls & butter, and sweet spice pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream. Most items are prepared to be gluten-free, and a savory pasta main is available for vegetarian guests. Hot coffee and tea are also included.

Dinner for each party will be served family-style and have all the favourites and trimmings. If you are American or Canadian, you will feel right at home. If you are not, you’ll experience what all the commotion is about.

Seating for dinner will be both indoors and in the courtyard. We will call you before Thanksgiving Day and ask your prefered location and do our best to accommodate it.

Dinner will be served at 6:30pm. For guests who would like to make the day last a bit longer, the tavern is welcoming guests from 5:00pm for pre-dinner drinks in the tavern and garden. The tavern will also have homemade raspberry lemonade available for the young and young at heart.

Pianist, Robbie Mann, will be entertaining throughout the evening.

Book early for your family and close friends to experience this once-a-year 3-course feast. Accents welcomed but not required.

Seating is limited, so don’t delay. You can book online 24/7 at Eventbrite, or telephone on 6238-1044 during office hours.
